"You are a bit scared," Halep said. "But I think I played much better in the end."
"It was a very, very tough one," Halep said. "I expected it because I knew that she's going to serve big and also the forehand is big. I didn't feel 100% ready for the tournament because I had a long break (after Wimbledon). But I'm really pleased with the way it was today, the fact that I fought till the end."
